rolling on. yet president obama still holds another pep rally today for his ev ever faltering health care law. this time the pep rally had no pep. a new report says about a third of all the obama care enrollees may not be enrolled. that's the reported failure rate on the so-called back end information that is sent to insurance companies. in other words, thousands of the nation's fast food workers are set to strike tomorrow. they want a $15 minute wage but don't they know that would essentially kill theiras the move to automation moves ahead. which country is the most charitable? it's the good old usa and thanks to free market capitalism. i will explain all those stories and much more coming up on the kudlow report beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone, i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report". we're here live 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 p.m. pacific. it's getting harder and harder for grab to put a happy face on obama care. new problems keep popping up every day. maybe that's why the president seemed so subdued at an even if meant to rally the troops. eamon javers has all the d
plus success equals one massive right wing freakout. president obama's health care law is working. and many on the right just can't handle it. here's what i'm talking about. >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. that's the reason he's mourned today because of that struggle he performed. but you're right. what he was advocating for was not necessarily the right answer, but he was fighting against some great injustice. and i would make the argument that, you know, we have a great injustice going on in this country with an ever-increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people's lives. and obama care is front and center in that. >> yes. he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting apartheid. rick santorum doesn't have to like the health care law, but he's a former u.s. senator. does he really think it compares to government-backed racial segregation. but this is the ugliest we've seen from comparing the law that saves lives to hurricane katrina to saying the law was terrorizing the
and a deduct dibl so high they pay for all of the health care anyway. what is teaching americans about obama care is the reality and implementation of obama care. that's the problem that president obama has to it deal with. and they it are learning about tradeoffs in obama care. for everybody that it hurts somebody else will pay more. >> did the democrats pressure the white house. and you can't hang us out to dry with this? >> democrats met with white house officials on capitol hill. they are very nervous. every democrat is up for reelection and democrats in the senate are as well. and anybody who has been here since 2010, if you are democrat, you voted for obama care. you will have a republican opponent who points to people who lost their koefrng and paying higher deductibles and they will say it is your fault. >> we are 90 minutes away from the president's first pr push. thank you for previewing it for us. >> there is a new report from the washington post that combines all of the healthcare.gov errors and impacted a third of the people signing up. that is raising questioning of whether the
in their battle against president obama's health care law, and are they beginning to run out of ammunition? joining me live now, senior political editor mark murray, it was one of the first reads that noted that part of the strategy problem for republicans regarding focusing heavily on the website was if it was repaired or if things start to run a bit more smoothly, where would they go here? we're seeing that strategy at least from speaker boehner's team saying that they plan to highlight what they still fear are low points regarding coverage for people. >> tamron, one of the biggest developments in the health care debate that everyone is running in place. resuscitate a lot of argument wez saw in 2010 or 2012, senate democrats talking about how republicans want to privatize medicare and they are responding back that democrats ended up voting for medicare cuts in the health care law and relitigating things we had in 2010 and 2012. you are right, there was this big fear among republicans that once the website was fixed that all of a sudden the issue would perhaps go away and everyone would d
. >> i am in the obama care pool. i am buying my own health insurance. >> paying more or less? >> substantially less. >> you're full of crap. i don't believe it. >> do you want the number? >> you're one of a few people. >> i have already said it. i have been paying $2,200 a month because i'm uninsurable. do you know what i'll pay for the best policy available on the new york exchange? >> $800? >> yeah. >> do you know who's subsidizing you -- >> nobody. >> the sick, the elderly, the uninsured are subsidized by young people who don't want to sign up. >> the whole thing is unconscionable. obama promised he would insure everybody. you can quibble over it. and argue that 50 million were uninsured. some 8 to 10 million fell through the cracks. it was a misleading figure from the start. it was enough obama to change the entire health care system to damage the entire economy and now 5% is a diminimus figure to him. 80% of the website is working. 5% is no big deal. >> 90%. but that aside, do you know how much jeff bezos would have played to have amazon working at a 9 of 10 success rate
preventative care for 105 million cares. free preventive care. obama care provides health services to americans including free immunizations for children. free cancer screenings. free mammograms. what is your plan that would allow these folk, 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you've got to pay for it. more people will lose their insurance under obama care. the republican plan is we have a choice. more choices not less. obama care narrows your choices. for competition, selling insurance across state line and above all, we're for driving premiums now. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. yonlt see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. loans. last march, you took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week as i'm sure you know, the head, we're looking at a picture of the drone right there, of amazon, announced they have plans, maybe five years down the road, that loans would come, pick up a package.
lawmakers to sell the embattled health care law to a skeptical public. we'll speak to an architect of obama care, but joining me now is is rand paul. welcome back. >> good morning. >> before we get to obama care, i want to talk to you about your trip to detroit this week where you helped open the first of what are going on several republican outreach centers and inner cities. you also unveiled your plan for economic freedom zones in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you had sent a flat individual and corporate tax rate with 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits and loosen visa rules to encourage entrepreneurs to open businesses. while those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. the president pours a trillion dollars into the nation's economy when you divided it out, it was about $400,000 per child. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and loser rs. with this stimulus i'm talking about, a free market stimulus,
. >> and embattled toronto mayor is criticizeing president obama. mayor ford denouncing president obama's health care law telling sports radio show that the affordable care act is too expensive despite the fact that canada prides itself in a government run h care system and says as a person i like president obama. i don't like his policies. >> some parents are sounding off after a new baby bouncy seat has an ipad holder. the toy company released this video showing how it works. the toy company is selling the seat for $80 and says it offers play and learning at finger tips of the baby but some parents are disgusted. customer reviews say the contraption has to be one of the worst ideas for baby products. what do you think? you can join the conversation on facebook.com/abc. >> i could write a whole blog because i have so much to say about that but we don't have the time now. >> in a word? >> i thought you were going with the brrr word. >> that works. i put the picture of 23 degrees but can you beat that? >> i got a tweet, 20 degrees in north livermore! here is live doppler 7 hd, it is clear. it is sitti
not so. >> i think what he's saying is there's no agreed-upon republican health care plan to rival obama care. >> so now we have to read into what he said? i tell you what he did say. he says because they sure haven't presented an alternative. that's just false. whether you like the alternative or not, that's false. >> now we've got to go to the third point. where are we headed? he's going to veto any change in obama care that he doesn't like. i think the republicans could win the u.s. senate in 2014. where are we going to go? a republican senate, a republican house, we would have gridlock for two years, but i don't see how the republicans overturn obama care without a national revolution against it which could get him two-thirds of both houses. >> i do worry about one thing, this website which has been a debacle is a real distraction. i've always thought the website could be fixed. the big problem is number one, can we pay for it. are the young and the healthy really buying into it. we don't know that yet. that's number one. number two is the problem, do we have the doctors to deliver t
. >>> one group definitely profiting from the obama care mess, lawyers. the health plan is once again being dragged into court. correspondent shannon bream is here with that story. tell us about this latest challenge. >> reporter: today in federal court in washington this is a lawsuit about the text of an irs regulation stemming from the overall health care law. the plaintiffs in this case say the text of the law says those subsidies that go out to help people buy insurance are only supposed to be given out in states that have set up their own state exchanges and not into states where the federal government is the one operating the exchange. the irs says not. so according to the agency's interpretation those subsidies go to applicants in every state. that is a huge distinction. it's very important. because where the subsidies are awarded, that triggers massive costly mandates for the employers. they wouldn't have otherwise. that's why they're suing. they say the costs will force them to cut employee hours, stop hiring, maybe even go out of business. they say this is just another example of
people. they came up, dare i say it, with health care exchanges which president obama put into law. they came up with revenue sharing to help stress state and local government. they're turning their own back on their own history. not just on liberal ideas. >> you know, congressman, a lot of people -- this was brought home when they realize you're talking about children. there was as i said this very arresting article in "the new york times" this morning front page that i read very early this morning. about this 11-year-old named sesani. and it brought to mind when the president was speaking on income inequality. he talked about children in poverty. listen. >> the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own. that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. we are a better country than this. >> i mean, when we get to the point where children in no fault of their own are living in these situations and it's just discarded, that's troubling about the spiri
$716 billion from medicare to spend on obama care. >> the gop is dusting off some romney health care talking points. >> the cuts, which do not come out of the medicare trust fund, actually make medicare more efficient. >> medicare, lots of spending, diverted from that program for obama care. >> that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard in my life! >> the number two trender. rush judgment. >> limbaugh is actually now going after the pope. >> the pope here has now gone beyond catholicism. >> i exhort you to generous solidarity and return to economics and finance to an ethical approach, which favors human beings. >> this is just pure marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope. >> catholic groups call on limbaugh to apologize to the pope. >> the pope is ripping america. the pope ripping capitalism. >> the pope isn't against capitalism. the pope is against capitalism serving profits. >> the pope ripping trickle-down economics. and obama is having an organize gam. >> no crudeness on the right is there? >> he wants a capitalism that promotes people over profits. >> to hear the pope regurgit
the beginning of the obama care debate i've been telling you it's not the cost of the health insurance that will be the main problem. yes, the cost is going to go higher for working americans, no question, but it is access to doctors that will vex americans in the future. in the next five weeks millions of americans will be added to the medicaid rolls. next year the congressional budget office predicts that 9 million more people will be receiving medicaid. just 69 percent of american doctors accept medicaid now. that number may go lower as government payments drop. if millions are added to the medicaid rolls and two-thirds accept those patients, the lines are going to be all over the place. joining us from oklahoma city, dr. keith smith who has a surgery practice and dr. brooks. dr. brooks, you don't take medicaid health insurance at all, correct? >> that's correct, bill. >> why? >> i don't think i can do a thorough job. i don't believe in running people through my practice. i don't believe in volume practice and the new laws really would necessitate my pushing people through, not doin
which is just one more failure of the obama health care law. bill: does that explain why the premiums are going higher? why the deductibles are going higher? so you get the middle class to pay for the medicaid expansion? >> well that is a big part of this goal of the president's health care law is to get young, healthy people, to buy much more insurance that they need or want or will ever use to pay for other people's coverage but sure looks like those young people are not going to be signing up because they have seen through what the president is tried to do here. i think all across the country people are being hit with higher premiums, higher deductibles. front page story today in the "wall street journal", that the deductibles on average are much higher, over $5,000 per person if they buy the least expensive of the policies on the exchange, the so-called bronze exchanges. people that are going to do comparative shopping are going to find this health care law that president obama has offered them is not a good deal. many people feel they will be pay more, getting less. i was back in
is here and ready to roll. is an obama care bailout already in the works? the white house offering insurance companies something you probably never heard about but should. >>> first it was broken promises over keeping your doctor and your health plan. now this. >> no more taxpayer funded bailouts, period. >> this week the white house quietly offering insurance companies another obama bailout. it would offset costs for reinstating policies cancelled due to the health care law. this is on top of a trillion dollars we're giving insurers to offer more affordable coverage. michelle, guess who is going to pay for another bailout. >> here he is basically buying out insurance companies on top of providing them with a trillion dollars in subsidies for the next ten years and now we learn about a little known provision that basically says if insurance companies suffer losses three years after the implementation of obama care, we are the ones who are going to reimburse and compensate insurance companies for their losses. it's ridiculous. >> risk corridor is going to cost a trillion dollars and
. free preventative care. let's put it up on the screen. obama care provides health services to 105 million americans including free immunization for children, free cancer screenings, free mammograms. question. what is your plan that would allow these folks, the 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you're going to pay for it. we're paying for it through higher premiums. we're also going to find out in january that more people will lose their insurance under obama care, i think, than will actually gain it. the republican plan is freedom of choice. more choices, not less. obama care narrows your choices. we're for competition. we're for selling insurance across state lines. and above all, we're for driving premiums down. the problem under the old system was premiums were too high. under obama care the premiums are even higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. drones. last march you famously took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the m
companies and obama care in and of itself is a bailout. this is not a government takeover of health care as so many of your guests say on a weekly basis. you can't have it both ways. this programbrings 31 million new customers into their bank accounts. >> let's be honest, john. >> what part of this isn't controlled by government. it hits the nail on the head. this isn't capitalist, liberty, this isn't america. this is fascism, an economy that's supposedly privately owned but in reality, completely controlled, manipulated and as michelle said subsidized by government. we have billions of taxpayer dollars going to those -- i thought they were evil. they were supposedly evil. >> they are. >> the insurance companies to offset their losses, to share in their profits, subsidies for them and the unions get a free pass. this is obama's animal farm. >> when we were researching the story we pulled up that video tape of president obama and guess how he ended that sentence again, period. no more taxpayer funded bailouts, period. michelle, help me out here. >> what bothers me is that it seems every m
have 48 million people who before obama care had no health insurance at all, what is the republicans' position? what is their solution to the fact that we spend so much more than any other country? their solution is to end medicare as we know it, transform it into a voucher system, give a senior citiz citizcitizen $8,000 and say good luck. make massive cuts in medicaid, and you're even seeing in states around the country now, republican governors whose states could have free medicaid for three years. doesn't cost them a nickel. for all of their low-income people, they are saying no, we don't want it. so what is very clear about this whole situation is the republicans have nothing to say. all they can do is play the anti obama care card, and hope that it fails. and they're going to lose on that. of. >> now, paralleling back to the alabama-auburn football game about never giving up, this was one game in one season. there's going to be another season and another game and the republicans are going to never stop playing it, because they have gone after the entitlement programs, the big th
to sign up for the obama care on health care.gov? log onto the facebook page. tell us your experience with the site. first for more reaction on the developing story we turn to the former clinton adviser, host of wpht in philly. dick morris. how are you? >> hey. good to see you, sean. >> i thought it was to be fix d by december 1. that was their deadline. >> yeah, well, the whole point is the incompetence of the system. you think you are signing up for insurance, but in fact, the insurance company doesn't know anything about it. this is just a website where you're enrolling. the insurance company doesn't have your info, the subsidy you were promised. they don't have the plan you enrolled for. they don't have any of that. that all remains to be built in 30 days. a lot of people are going to need health care on january 2. they will think they're insured and they won't be. >> you're referring to the new york city times and a front page story they had out. in spite of this the problems exist. people think they signed up for the health care. >> yeah. >> they contact the insurance company to
with health care. but people in obama care, they can't go to the best hospitals. they're not going to be able to see as many doctors as they want. and they're going to see rationed care and longer lines. but zeke emanuel admitted if you're willing to pay more, you can get broader options, you can maybe go abroad and have medicine around the world. the purpose was to bridge the gap. and obama care only makes it even wider. as you mentioned, larry, with the co-pays going up, it's even worse -- >> we're going to play that zeke emanuel tape in a few minutes. chris kofinis, because i admire and respect you and i have so much affection for you, i want to give you a little piece of free political advice. get this guy zeke emanuel off the air. >> absolutely! >> this guy -- he's been on this show. either he lied or he was just ignorant. the guy is supposed to be a smart guy. teaches school at the university of pennsylvania. get him out of there because every time he shows up and makes the statements that he makes, this is like the democratic party dying of 1,000 cuts. chris, can you write that in, get
, the premium for health -- obama care or paying your debt? >> well, i'd say that may not be the best way to look at it right now. when people talk about obama care they forget about all the positives. the fact that right now for me in college i'm not paying any higher premium. i'm allowed to stay on my parents' health insurance until i'm 26 because of obama care. when i end up finding my own plan which i do plan on doing once i turn 26, i will not be denied for any pre-existing conditions, i'm not going to be denied because i'm a woman, i won't pay any higher charges. i think those are very important things to focus on but back to your point about student loan debt, i don't necessarily see it as a trade-off that way because i know a lot of people will not be able to be covered because of their parents because they're able to stay with them until they're 26 but with student loan, that's something that's tackled in a separate way but putting the two together -- >> i don't know, charlie, it's just expenses. you all have expenses, i got expenses, and i'm just trying to figure out how this is
together. all of us care about health care. we don't believe that obama care is the way to afford that kind of care to the people. and in fact, the congressional budget office, again, said that our approach, the one that's patient based, the one that allows for more flexibility four health savings accounts, the one that says that people request purchase health care across state lines and a plan that had in it safeguard for those with pre-existing conditions but did not implement a plan that raised prices the way that obama care does. the president knows we have that plan. so it is a little bit baffling to hear the president say what he says, and i'm hopeful that he'll stop and he'll actually begin to listen to the kinds of things that many of us have been talking about and that we've had discussions about with others in his white house but frankly, he's not listening. >> we also want to get your thoughts on this, on what the obama administration is calling an enrollment surge. they are pleased that 29,000 people signed up for obama care in the first 48 hours since their november 30 relaunch
experience been like interacting with the canadian health care system? >> excellent. >> obama is trying to emulate the socialized health care system here in canada. >> we have a socialized health care? >> use your brains a little bit. >> what are you? >> i'm on the way to being tammy. i used to be tom. >> yes, making excellent progress. >> and does the canadian health care system pay for that? >> under certain circumstances, they will. >> see, obama is trying to emulate you guys. and now it's a train wreck. so i think it's your fault. >> everybody blames canada, right? ♪ blame canada, blame canada >> in this emergency department here we have homeless people, we have bank presidents. they're side by side. >> have you heard of obama care? >> obama care? >> yeah. >> is that a violent thing? >> it sounded like a damn monster movie. >> are you satisfied with your health care here in canada? >> no. we don't enjoy waiting months for an appointment. so it's not the most effective way. >> what are you, a doctor or something? >> did you have to wait any line? >> yeah, about eight hours. >> four

that under obama care health care costs are going to rise while some 44% believe that the quality of care is going to go down. now here's the problem for the president. the financial assumptions in obama care count on a very large group of young healthy people to support the older sicker people who go to the doctor and the hospital more often. trey grayson, the director of the institute of politics, said this has to be very concerning for the white house. >> puts them really behind the eight ball on this. sometimes there's what they call a dust spiral that can take place where the health care act isn't sustainable. we're not there yet, but this shows that there's some real hurdles ahead to try to make this law work. >> greyson says this really is a sea change among the president's core constituents. >> as numbers go, john, in that survey, those aren't the only ones the white house is probably concerned about. >> no. obama care is just one of the headlines. just a couple of other very troubling numbers. one in five people who say that they voted for president obama last year say if they ha
network of health care providers. they are actually in the obama care network. explain. >> the plans were certified without networks in place. they were supposed to review the networks to make sure they were adequate. >> what does that mean? >> they don't know which doctors will be available to the people to sign up for coverage. for the plans that formulated the networks where they know what doctors will be available, on average they are offering access to the number of specialists offered in the older plans being cancelled. it will be harder to get access to a doctor. it will be hard to get access to doctors that you used to go see. if you go outside your network, the coinsurance, the costs to you could be upwards of 100%. you could be paying out of pocket. >> why? >> the amount of money they will pay to off set care outside the restrictive networks is low. on the order of 340r7b9. so if you go outside your network you can't afford it in a lot of circumstances. >> right. >> you have to stay inside your network. you said one low cost plan had only seven pediatricians in the network to se

reveals president obama never had a one on one interview with disgraced health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius for three and a half years leading up to the launch of the obama care disaster. peter will join us with that story today. first our top story tonight. there were several important house hearings on capitol hill. all focused on the president's disastrous health care law. let not your heart be troubled. we know you probably couldn't catch up on the hours of testimony. so we put together the highlights for you. >> individuals are losing coverage they are happy with. the doctors with which they are comfortable. this is a tragedy. >> looking forward, the flaws in the law have proved to be getting worse, not better. >> yesterday i logged into the d.c. exchange where members of congress must go and got on error. >> rome wasn't fwhibuilt in a d >> this is people's lives. people are hurt when they can't get medical care. >> i believe the premise for the hearing today is fundamentally flawed. >> people's health care is compromised when they can't get medical care. >>

. what? >>> president obama's famous promise, if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, is ringing even more hollow tonight. chief national correspondent jim angle reports on new numbers that indicate just how hard replacing that plan you like may be. >> reporter: one republican said reports obama care had enrolled 29,000 people in two days this week doesn't come close to the pace they need. >> the new improved website will need to enroll close to 100,000 people per day every day this month. that's how many who selected a plan in all of october. >> reporter: others say state and federal exchanges together need to enroll 200,000 a day. that raises the prospect that people whose policies were cancelled might not be able to sign up in time to avoid a gap in coverage, especially since insurance companies are getting bogus information on who signed up. >> it's impossible for everyone that signs up by december 23rd to get coverage and to have that work through the system. >> reporter: but even for those who are able to enroll, about 50% of the plans available are narrow netwo

news, president obama attempts to resell his key health carry law saying what you need for washington to work is basically rules in washington. >> yes, i've got a strong chief of staff. i'm holding every cabinet member accountable the challenge is not so much my personal management style, or particularly issues with the white house organization, it has to do with what i refer to earlier, which is we have the big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed proper flichlt our history. usually when we've made big progress it's been party controlled the government for a period of time. big strides we made in the new deal with the great society, you know those were times when you had a big majority. >> joining me now with reaction is charles krauthammer. your thoughts because you heard the president talk about how i am holding every cabinet member accountable, then, comments about making progress and issues it's been when one party had a big majority. >> as far as claim is benghazi, nobody has been held accountable. surely not the secretary of state the only person
is off to a slow start. mean while, president obama turned from health care to the economy offering what the white house billed as a major address on american unequality. some are calling it a early preview of the state of the union and the upcoming initiatives to help the middle class. >> while we don't promise equal outcomes we strive to driver equal opportunities. a grandson, a son, a father, as an american, is to make sure that every striving hard working optimistic kid in mark has the same incredible chance this country gave me. over the course of the next year and rest of my presidency, that's where you should expect my administration to focus all of our efforts. >> let's look at that new address with friend of the show josh barrow, politics editor at business insider. welcome, josh. the president gave that speech and talked about a lot of things in the economy and mentioned minimum wage ten times and talked about growth. what about this speech is different since we've heard this president talk about inequality before? >> i don't think it is that different. it's a message we've bee
for your analysis. >> the obama administration now patting itself on the back for improvements to the health care website. it doesn't seem like that much but senate majority leader harry reid seems pleased. i'm not cocky but comfortable. i think we are in pretty good shape. so, susan, i don't know harry reid may be one of the few democrats right now who would use the word cocky to describe where the party is standing currently. your thoughts? >> there is a division. there are safer democrats who are willing to talk about the things that are going well. they have had a slight boost in enrollment. the website is working more smoothly and then you have the reality democrats, the ones who are getting the calls to their office about cancelled insurance policies. they are afraid of what is going to happen in 2014. if you look at the polls, there are democrats who might lose in 2014 because of this. joe mansion is having a town hall meeting today hearing complaints about uncertainty and their premiums are going up. ha harry reid is a former boxer and this is playing offense. it is say
, but you don't. anyway, a second report now says president obama only met with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius once face to face in the last 3 1/2 years. when white house press secretary jay carney was asked about it, he has a bizarre response. >> i wish you had called me beforehand. because i -- i'm in a very charitable mood today. so i won't go too strong on this. but that report, not the report you cited, but the published report that was written by an advocate is based on a ridiculously false premise. cabinet secretaries don't regularly get entered into the visitors logs because they come frequently. kathleen sebelius comes frequently. >> all right. so he's defending the fact that these meetings took place. although two reports now say that they really didn't. >> maybe they snuck her in the back door. >> i don't know. lauren, the fact of the matter is, he said that the reporter should have privately called him. are we to assume, then, that he did not want the rest of the world to know about this? >> he just did. that's what doesn't make any sense about this. >>
if it was going too fast. >>> president obama is said to make some comments about his health care law at a youth white house event today. it's the second-straight day he will be talking about obama care. as karen travers tells us, that's by design. >> reporter: president obama highlighted the progress at healthcare.gov. but once again, he reminded americans that the health care law is not just a website. and he had a strong message for republicans. he said the health care law is here to stay. >> my main message today is we're not going back. after just the first month, despite all of the problems in the rollout, about 500,000 people across the country are poised to gain health care coverage threw marketplaces and medicaid beginning on january 1st. >> reporter: but the white house says the problems are almost fixed. over the next three weeks they'll make a big push to get people enrolled so they have health insurance by january 1st. john and diana? >> karen, thank you. >>> bill clinton is clarifying recent comments about health care. president clinton recently said that mr. obama should keep his
.gov. reporter: president obama's aides struggled to explain whether they really met the deadline to fix health care.gob after there has been so much weight time, which the white house insists is progress. >> i think you're confusing error messages with queuing messages. >> the site has been performing well and there is not a reason to deploy the queuing system at this point department with 375,000 users logging on on monday, errors and response times increased and consumers were told to come back at a better time. >> the goal is to enroll more people. >> more people are visiting the website and are able to effectively go from beginning to end when it comes to enrolling than was the case in october. reporter: insurance companies put out a new warning that the backend systems of the website meant to deliver consumer information to insurers are still not ready. >> kathleen sebelius come in to health and human services secretary issued a desperate plea, writing in usa today that those americans who have experienced difficulties online, please do not give up. in the marketplace as an opportunity fo
either european health care or nothing. that's a false choice. most would vote him out of office. >> 50 -- >> go ahead. >> 52% of young people would recall the president based on this law. >> and 57% don't want obama care. now you look at another core constituency. we heard after the election about the latino vote in america. look at the latest poll out of gallup. the support of of the president has gone down 23% among hispanic voters. that's a huge discrepancy. from where he was a year ago. >> and the reason -- now this is not obviously a good law for the american people. but politically, the reason why this is valuable is it's exposing the president for what he's about. he's all about making promises that aren't coming true. now people are getting the reality of what barack obama is about in their mailbox. the difference between this scandal and many others is this is affecting millions of people in their bank account losing their doctor, their health care. this is just the beginning. just wait until employers have the option of dumping their insurance and throwing people on these exc
